NCAA tournament preview: MI

May JohnsonMar 21, 2019

MI forward Ignas Brazdeikis was the key man for the third-seeded Wolverines March 9, scoring 20 points in 22 minutes before fouling out. Michigan State stayed hot through most of the half, leading 27-10 with 7:30 remaining in the half.

"For us, especially me, Austin, X and Charles to win back-to-back-to-back", MI junior Jon Teske said, "it'd be something special".

GEORGIA STATE 73, TEXAS-ARLINGTON 64: Malik Benlevi hit four 3-pointers and finished with 16 points, and Georgia State (24-9) advanced to a second straight NCAA tournament by beating Texas-Arlington (17-16) in the Sun Belt Conference final at New Orleans.

Michigan State: Michigan State (2) will face Bradley (2) on Thursday in Iowa. He is 18-8 in tournament play during his tenure at MI.

Michigan: The Wolverines would love nothing more than to get some payback against Michigan State after blowing a chance to win the regular-season title by losing to their rival twice in the final four games.

An emotional scene developed as head coach Tom Izzo and several of the Spartans players were in tears seeing Ahrens in huge pain.

Trump slams Russian Federation probe but says report should be public
Currently, 50% of Americans consider Mueller's investigation to be a witch hunt, while 47% disagree. The poll prompted a tweet from the president, who said that "very few think" the poll "is legit".

Now, the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll has been released and both Michigan State (No. 5) and Michigan (No.8) moved up.

Considered by some to be a potential No. 1 seed if they won their conference tournament, Michigan State instead got stuck as the 2 seed in the same bracket as Duke. "At halftime, I really didn't know what was going to happen".

Ethan Happ had 20 points, six rebounds and four blocked shots for Wisconsin. The Badgers closed to 47-41 on Khalil Iverson's three-point play before Winston converted a layup and Goins rattled home a 3-pointer to help run the lead back out to nine with 9:12 to go. "We can get right back to playing".

MI put the game away in the second half with a 9-0 run that made it 56-30 with about 14 minutes left.

There's a cliche that says it's hard to beat a team three times in a season but reality says otherwise. The Spartans beat the Wolverines 77-70 on February 24 and 75-63 last Saturday.
